Directions

  1. Spray your ramekins with cooking spray.

  7. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Check them. If the butter is all melted and powdery spots remain, add more butter.
  8. Bake for 5 minutes or until brownie mix is crisp but not burnt. Marshmallows will bubble up and the containers will appear very full.

When they were finished and cooled, we put them in a cute little box, topped it with our Christmas card and delivered it to dear friends. Perfection!

Of course, we enjoyed a bite or two by the Christmas tree as well.

Sweet treats are two gifts in one—the gift of family time while we bake together and sample, of course, and the gift of a sweet treat to those we love.
